Mapa con Percusión [Map with Percussion]. 2005.
Sound action in which a Mexico City’s Historical Center map is outlined on a steel plate. The map is being drawn by steps, first with pencil, after with an awl and then with a cutting-disc. Finally, the more conflictive areas are pointed by sledge-hammer hits.
Sound resulting from scratches, grindings and hammerings is caught by several contact-microphones. The sound source is recorded, played and transformed in real time during the performance.
Done in collaboration with musician Rogelio Sosa. Ex-Teresa Arte Actual, Mexico City.
